    Stuff going in this list are the things everyone will need to bring:

    Personal Items
    [ul][li]Toilet Paper[/li][li]Shampoo[/li][li]Soap (standard hygenic stuff)*[/li][li]Sleeping bag[/li][li]Mattress of some kind[/li][li]Spare blankets[/li][li]Pillow[/li][li]Sunscreen[/li][li]Mosquito spray[/li][li]2-3 changes of clothing**[/li][li]Dufflebag or backpack for clothes[/li][li]garbage bag[/li][li]camp chair[/li][li]At least $40 in spending cash would be a good idea[/li][li]hat[/li][li]flashlight[/li][li]whistle[/li][li]sneakers or hiking shoes[/li][li]rain gear (if possible)[/li][li]tarp (to cover your tent if you don't have a rain fly)[/li][/ul]

    *packing tip: put these items in a ziploc bag so if there are any leaks it won't get on your clothes.

    ** Terry will be posting an expanded list of warm clothes to bring incase the forecast calls for more cold weather.


    This will also be the 'swap' thread. If you have a spare sleeping bag/mattress/tent/etc. and someone is short on any personal item then they can ask if anyone has any to spare or you can post that you have extras.

    This may be alarmist but given the weather this week we decided the possibility of cold weather should be addressed. The nights will probably be cool regardless of the daytime temp and basic common sense says there will be at least one inclement day. I'm a big fan of layers, taking something off is way better than freezing cause you didn't bring a sweater.

    Clothes you should bring.

    2 pairs of pants ___
    1 pair of shorts ___
    We can reverse the short to pants ratio depending on the forcast.
    3-4 T-shirts, preferably one with long sleeves ___
    1-2 Wool sweater(s), real wool is way warmer even when wet :) ___
    4 pairs (at least) of socks, preferably 2 pairs of wool socks. ___
    Undies ___
    1 set of warm P.J.s (or light sweat suit) ___
    1 jacket, hoodie or pullover that will actually cut down on wind. ___
    1 pair of extra shoes (at least something to tide you over while your main pair dries) ___
    Swimsuit and Towel ___

    For bedding I don't usually go with a closed sleeping bag but rather open it and use it as a base layer on the air mattress. Then I make it up like a bed with sheets, down filled blanket and a quilt. This may be overboard but I've woken up with snow and still been toasty. (there won't be snow but rainy days always feel colder than snowy ones) Again, it's easier to throw off a layer if you get too warm.

    Bedding should AT LEAST consist of:
    Air matress ___
    Sleeping bag ___
    Extra blanket ___

    I have two bottles of OFF Skintastic? mosquito repellant lotion that I am willing to share with everyone, so you don't have to buy your own for the trip. ;)

    I also have an extra 2 sleeping bags if someone needs them, however they are Spring weather grade, and you should bring a blanket or two to use with them.

    I have one camp chair available.

    Don't forget to bring your own cutlery and mug. Plastic knives don't cut roast beef very well. ;)
